Read It! I LOVE books.

The Laws of Harmony by Judith Ryan Hendricks is a well-written novel about a woman who leaves her home in Albuquerque in search of a new life. Having been raised on a commune in New Mexico, the protagonist has issues with her mother which is sort of an ongoing theme in the book. Sunny Cooper's boyfriend is killed in a tragic accident which serves as the catalyst in Sunny's move to a tiny island off the coast of Washington. But of course, everything that she's run from comes back to her and life lessons abound.

Whacked by Jules Asner, I liked this one quite a bit. The heroine is slowly losing her mind as she comes to terms with her cheating, lying boyfriend. What she is driven to do will have you shaking your head, thinking...only in Hollywood. Its a fun page turner! I look forward to future novels from Jules.

Also to read is David Benioff's novel called City of Thieves. I need to be in the right state of mind for this book, as it looks serious and heavy. A book that has been sitting on my nightstand is The List, 100 Ways to Shake Up Your Life by Gail Belsky. I dip into this one when I need a little kick in the pants.

I always love a good memoir so I started reading Allegra Huston's book, Love Child: A Memoir of Family Lost and Found. Allegra is director John Huston's daughter and actress Anjelica Huston's half sister. I expect this one to really grip me.

I always have some kind of non -fiction book that I'm reading and this time its Talent is Overrated. I'm especially interested in learning how successful people reach their goals so this book is a must-read for me. I'm learning that no one has super powers, its all about hard work and discipline, Going above and beyond hard work, immersing yourself in what you want to excel at and this practice usually begins at a very young age. Thank goodness I have a head start, I've been writing since I was about five. That means I'm ready for my huge success now, right? I better keep reading.

Someone who knows about dedication, hard work and success is Dana Torres and her book, Age is Just a Number is sitting next to me, waiting to be picked up and read. Jen Lancaster has so many memoirs that Amazon has a Jen Lancaster store now. I will not be able to refuse the lure of Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or, the Wonder Years Before the Condescending,Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smart Ass Phase. I will never remember the entire title.

I'm not doing a whole lot of interviews any more but I couldn't resist asking Bethenny Frankel about her best selling book, Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting. That interview is coming soon! Happy Reading...there is nothing better than a good book! Except of course, makeup.
